Bruising easily is more common with age as the integrity of the capillaries decrease and the skin becomes more thin. Certain blood thinning medications such as aspirin and warfarin reduces the ability of your blood to clot which in turn can cause damage to a capillary to take longer to heal. also corticosteroids which can result in thinning of the skin can cause that you bruise more easily. If you are on any of these medicines, you are not advised to stop them. You should consult with your doctor to determine the cause of your bruising to rule out any bleeding disorders
